OVERVIEW “Just around the Corner . . .” is a phrase that many who have followed Fr John through the streets of Rome will recognise. This book is a collection of some of those corners, told through the walks and memories he has shared with pilgrims whilst guiding them around the city. Fr John Daley joined the Institute of Charity and spent four years of his studies for the priesthood in Rome during the 1960’s, a time of excitement and change in the Catholic Church. He was based at the Rosminian College, Porta Latina, and took full advantage of the opportunity to explore the Eternal City. Over the years he has returned with many pilgrim groups, enthralling them with his knowledge and enthusiasm of a city swathed in myth, history, religion, culture and story.

More information
WATERMEAD STORY : Background to 'Watermead Pathways'. Over the years there has been constant requests from people to ask Fr John to put in writing some of the stories and thoughts he has shared over the years during homilies and at retreats. This request has been fulfilled indirectly when Fr John has been asked to write for the Catholic press and local Church magazines, and, in the typing up of these various articles, a database of his writings had been available for a some time - they just needed putting together in book form. In 2010, after much persuasion, he allowed us to make a start on a collation of his writings. The books are illustrated by people who have contributed their artwork over the years. 'ROME, JUST AROUND THE CORNER' is the fourth book in the 'Watermead Pathways' series.
